Heart-healthy diet, nutrition & lifestyle

Some women may not know that they can do a lot to combat heart disease with simple healthy eating and exercise habits. But to many women, "diet” is a four-letter word.  And the exercise recommendations recently laid out — 60-90 minutes, every day — are intimidating. What’s a girl to do? 

Easy — keeping the recommendations in mind, find something that’s realistic, say the experts. Here, Sharonne N. Hayes, M.D., founder of the Women’s Heart Clinic and Dalene Bott-Kitslaar, RN, MSN, F-CNP, both of Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, translate official recommendations into simple, easy-to-live-by tips on eating well and staying active.
